Recipe by Mary K. W.

My daughter found this recipe and it has become our favorite for pecan pie. I have never found any restaurant pie to beat this one.

This was good, but way too sweet. The bourbon whipped cream was fantastic, though. The syrup/sugar/butter/vanilla combination will probably be really good to candy pecans with all on their own though!
